I'm Back ;-)

Hi everyone I just got home from Holland :-) I had a fabulous time staying with my sister, Denise, and her family.

The highlight of the week was meeting Ria at the craft fair in Utrecht :-) It was just sooo nice to meet her and we got along really well,,,old friends :-) She really took care of me too ,,, she knew where everything was and translated everything for me ;-)
We had a fabulous time shopping ,,,, spending far more than we should ,,, but it was alot of fun :-) Ria MADE me buy loads of goodies ,,,some decorative frames ,, a bit like nesties ,,,, loads of flowers , stamps, papers ,,,:-) I might take a piccy later to show you but they're still in my suitcase at the mo ,, and the combination lock won't open !!!!!ughughugh
Thanks Ria you were a star x x We had alot of fun and I am sure we'll meet again,,, maybe at a craft fair in the UK !!! :-)

It was lovely to meet a few of you from blogland too ,, Jacqueline,Paula, Thea and quite a few more ,,, big waves to you all x x

While Ria and I were shopping Denise joined in a workshop and made a sculpture ,,, unfortunately I didn't take any photo's of the finished article but it was really impressive !!!

I had a lovely time but it is nice to be home too ,,, Jessie gave me a lovely welcome home as did a few of the cats ,, the others didn't look as if they were bothered at all ha ha ha :-)

Will pop round and see what you've all been up to while I have been away ,,,:-)
